It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for the realest talk on the internet, REAL TALK with Jimmy Moore. Today Jimmy welcomes Rebekah Farmer to the show.
“It was impossible for him to see his own faults.”
- Rebekah Farmer
Rebekah Farmer @tailoredketohealth was diagnosed with osteoporosis in 6th grade. In seventh grade, she ran into chronic pain. She was rushed to the emergency room with severe chest pains, and left with a diagnosis of costochondritis and degenerative disc. She was then diagnosed with OCD, anxiety, depression, insomnia, Narcolepsy, and a myriad of digestive issues such as gastroparesis, IBS, IBD, slow transit colon, Celiac and diverticulitis. Rebekah started regular Chiropractic treatments to address scoliosis and chronic pain. She went through multiple rounds of physical therapy, but symptoms continued to worsen. Shortly after graduating high school, she ran into chronic adrenal fatigue, crippling anxiety and pain so bad that she was bed bound. She had difficulty breathing, with frequent episodes of near- suffocation.
Desperate and afraid, she knew that she needed to dig deeper. She ventured to uncover the root of her issues, working with multiple functional medicine doctors, and embarked on a more strict/ personalized version of the ketogenic diet. She was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, ulcerative colitis, Addisons, Hashimotos hypothyroid, CREST scleroderma, and a central nervous system disorder called Central Sensitization Syndrome (see youtube video by Dr. Sletten of Mayo Clinic). With Keto, various supplements, and support she was able to get off of Adderal, Clonazepam, and Ambien after being dependent on them for 13 years. She gained energy and focus, and reversed Hashimotos! Her cystic acne also cleared completely. She was only just beginning to break free from the cage that she became burrowed into after years of quick “fixes” and excessive rounds of antibiotics ordered by traditional med doctors. Rebekah has continued to strip off the band-aids to uncover the sources and contributors to systemic disease that almost took her life, and more importantly her hope and joy.
Jimmy is pleased to have his friend and health coach Rebekah Farmer (@tailoredketohealth) back on the podcast again this year to talk about an important issue that needs to be talked about more. As she was going through her health recovery journey, Rebecca was in very abusive love relationship with a narcissist who showed little regard for her and she felt trapped in that broken relationship. Listen in to this interview as Jimmy and Rebecca talk about the difficulty in leaving this kind of situation and the clues that she started to notice they gave her the courage to step away.
